The ACS Exams Institute Undergraduate Chemistry Anchoring Concepts Content Map II: Organic Chemistry
Raker, Jeffrey; Holme, Thomas; Murphy, Kristen
Journal of Chemical Education, v90 n11 p1443-1445 Nov 2013
As a way to assist chemistry departments with programmatic assessment of undergraduate chemistry curricula, the ACS Examinations Institute is devising a map of the content taught throughout the undergraduate curriculum. The structure of the map is hierarchal, with large grain size at the top and more content detail as one moves "down" the levels of the map, of which there are four levels total. This paper presents these four levels of the map with reference to second-year, organic chemistry.
